Straw colored, white head. It seems to be missing something, don’t think this bottle is anywhere near new. Some minor herbs and grass, but far from a saison.

brenn79 (1471) - Idaho, USA - APR 7, 2013
12 oz. bottle- Pours hazy light golden with a one finger head. Aroma is floral, light spices, yeasty. The taste is mild funk, creamy, yeasty, strong banana flavors, not very complex, but pretty good actually, I could drink more than one of these. The body is medium, carbonation is medium high, creamy mouthfeel. Overall I liked it, a working mans saison, which is what the style was originally, before it became a higher end beer, but this is very basic, and tasty.

Cloudy golden yellow pour with a frothy white head. Aroma is spices, light fruit, lemon, and yeast. Taste is slight lemon, yeast, some spices. Tasty beer. Great lacing. A good beer for a 100 degree day.

seymour (1391) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Tasted from a 12oz brown bottle into a schooner glass. It poured a light hazy golden amber colour with deep, deep everlasting white foam and loads of Belgian lace. Some true to style Saison and/or Belgian Singel traits, though weaker and less complex overall than classic examples. Slightly grainy, spicy, fruity, citrusy, earthy, tart, yeasty, with some honey graham cracker notes, with a very dry finish. Nice noble hops aromas, but the flavour/bitterness was a bit harsh. A little mushy and bland comparatively, but still vastly better than most mass-produced lagers and golden ales. I would gladly drink this again and again, especially as an old-timey summer refresher. Good, not great.

Bif (1385) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Pours a hazy copper color with a thick head that fades very slowly to plenty of lacing. Aroma of citrus, fruit, spice and what seems to be banana. Taste of citrus, fruit some banana, spices and some bread. Mild bitterness blended with tart. Fairly dry finish. Medium body with ample carbonation. Decent beer for the style.

Beerenberger (1369) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 6, 2013
Aroma of spice (cloves) and citrus fruit with hints of barnyard/earthy funk. A clear golden yellow our with a moderately dissipating white head and minimal lacing. The taste is surprise. I get moderate malts and gram crackers with a slight touch of fruit and spice in the middle and a dry grainy finish. Medium-light body with crisp carbonation. Slightly watery. Overall, while a drinkable beer, it is not, sadly, very representative of the Saison style

Guerde (1161) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 26, 2013
(bottle) Drank during one of the nicer days of the year so far, so felt the style was appropriate for the weather. Pours out a clear gold color with a large, fluffy white head and solid levels of lacing. Yeast pour introduces plenty of haziness. Aroma holds some pizza crust, oregano, coriander, light banana, and faint soap bar. The flavor holds substantial cracker and bread notes, especially shining through on the finish, with further flavors of faint banana, mild but herbal hops in the mid, and a lingering finish of grain holding well on after drinking. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is a bit subdued for the style. Overall a decent saison that would be great for the upcoming summer weather.
